From June 2009 to June 2011 the state added 262,000 jobs, or half the USA’s 524,000 payroll gains, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas and the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

New Home Price Report Shows It’s a Great Time to Buy says Bob Stahl, Guest Writer, Realtor.com. “The most recent S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices was released on Tuesday and the news wasn’t as optimistic as we would like but not altogether surprising either. The S&P/Case-Shiller monthly report is the leading measure of U.S. home prices and on Tuesday, they reported that – in their 20-city composite – housing prices fell 1.6 percent from their November 2009 levels. Sixteen of the 20 cities in the index showed a year-over-year decline and 19 of the 20 metros showed a decline from the month prior (October 2010) However, the composite indices remain above their spring 2009 lows.”
